Reading Records: To be returned & signed every day - Your child can update the record, but we would be grateful if an adult provides a signature to approve the comments. Please help your child to become more independent in this task whilst also bearing in mind that there is a potential for the whole class to earn a reward if 100% of books are returned and appropriately signed.
Outdoor PE: Tuesday pm - Please ensure your child
Indoor PE: Friday pm - Please provide shorts & a t-shirt for this session. Barefoot is acceptable but black pumps are preferred to avoid injury.
Library: Friday pm -Children will have access to the school library every fortnight where they can choose a book to read. We will be visiting the school library every other Friday starting on 18th January. Children’s love of reading is something which is I hope to continue to nurture in 2019 - speaking to children about their book, and asking them questions about it would be very beneficial.
